I found out I could make crackers. ..Got me hooked, so now I try to make crackers to snack on all the time.
This recipe just happen to strike my fancy, as I could see a lot of different ways to make it.

Bake

Ingredients

1 stick
butter
3 oz
grated parmesan ( i use 1 cup )
1 1/4 c
all purpose flour
1/4 tsp
kosher salt
1 tsp
chopped fresh thyme leaves
1/2 tsp
freshly ground black pepper
about 3 tablespoons water

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Place butter in a bowl of an electric mixer (paddle attachment) and mix until creamy.
Add Parmesan, flour, salt, thyme and pepper and combine.
Add water as needed to form a ball of dough.
2
Dump the dough on a large piece of plastic wrap.
Lightly flour and roll into a 13-inch long log.
Wrap the log in the plastic wrap and place in the freezer for 30 minutes to harden.
3
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cut the log crosswise, with a sharp knife, into 1/4 to 1/2-inch thick slices.
I like thin slices for a crunchier cracker.
Place slices on a cookie sheet, lined with parchment paper and bake for 22 minutes.

Substitute thyme for: 1 tsp rosemary and garlic powder
or: 1 tsp Greek seasoning
or: Lemon zest and lemon juice (no water)
